By Anne Frank

The Diary oof A Young Girl is a true teenage girl’s diary that begins on Anne’s 13th birthday (12 June 1942), when she receives a diary. It tells the story of her family, who live in Frankfurt, Germany, and are forced to flee due to Hitler’s and the Nazi Party’s treatment of Jews in Europe during World War II. They flee to Amsterdam , where they go into hiding with other Jews. On August 1, 1944, the diary abruptly came to an end.

This book contains many important messages, but the most important message is that everyone has the right to live in freedom. Anne’s story demonstrates that people should not be treated differently though they have different religions or races. This illustrates the atrocities of the current society against Jews during the war. Her diary reveals things that most people do not consider, such as how people in hiding were constantly concerned about being discovered and punished.

Even though Anne and her family were in a terrible situation, I liked that she was a really happy and cheerful person. Anne enjoyed writing and describing others though she was talkative, inquisitive, and could be selfish. She was a typical adolescent who didn’t always realize how difficult life was for her mother and the other adults in her life. She made a remark about the people who helped them hide. It wasn’t always pleasant, but it shows how difficult everyone’s life was because they had to be quiet and not draw attention to themselves.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading historical, war, or mystery fiction. Because it is sad in places, this book is best suited for readers aged ten and up.
